Went to the park to play basketball with my 12 year old daughter (13 in 2 months). Two of her middle school friends were there, so she got kind of shy. I asked her if she was feeling weird because her friends were there and she said, “yeah.” I suggested we go get a drink at the convenience store. On the way we had the following conversation

Me: You are such a teenager.

Daughter: No I’m not. Im a tween. Im still twelve.

Me : Yeah, but you’re embarrassed to be playing with your Dad. And you’re 13 in 2 months. You’re such a teenager.

Daughter: No Daddy. If I was a teenager then I wouldn’t have come to the park with you to play basketball at all.

Me: Touché
